- Don’t click on, and for goddsake, don’t READ, anything called “10 Surefire Ways to Achieve World Peace, Eternal Happiness and Total Creative Fulfillment by Friday.”
Yeah, I got nothing else.
But I’m pretty sure I just gave you an immense gift of time. What are you going to go do with it?
P.S. “That’s it?”
“That’s it. Hey, I threw 3000 words—written in strappy knee-high, gladiator sandals, did I mention?—at you last week. This week—I give you the gift of time. Don’t squander it. Or, you know, do. It’s yours to do with as you will.”
Nice post. I’m going to practise my guitar.
My mission, achieved.
The best way to instantly achieve world peace is to put a harried mother with at least 4 kids under the age of 10 in charge. I DARE any countries esteemed leader to try to get to the front of the queue to argue their point. Suddenly they would be learning how to wait their turn, to feed themselves, to stop fighting with their sister/brother and to sit up straight and smile for the camera or they would get a clip around the ear and mum’s stink eye for the rest of the day. Forget negotiations, it would be “shut up, do what I say or ELSE” and that formidable mothers stare would cause eons of entrenched dogma to melt away into meek submission. She could teach them all to multitask and prioritise the wazoo out of any given situation. Find the most important issue and ride it like sea biscuit! Feed the hungry? She does it on a shoe string AND with 4 kids that all eat different things. Throw an outside job into the equation and you have one tough mother who will beggar no bullshit. Bring it on world leaders, she has been honed to the bone on life lessons, there is NOTHING you can throw at her that will make her back down or break. Judgement day is upon you!
Free time? I wish. Today we make it possible to bypass the slurping mud and gain entry to my vegetable garden with a wheelbarrow. Almost as good as achieving world peace on a much smaller scale 🙂
De-mudding is more to the point ;). Got the ramp finished and gave up on trying to smooth the dog foot prints out. Decided that dog footprints are the new black when it comes to concrete ramps.
